An instant classic of contemporary Rolex production, reference 116610LV was launched in 2010 and immediately captured the attention of collectors thanks to its green dial and bezel combination. This model replaced the 50th anniversary reference 16610LV, also known as the “Kermit”. In comparison to the previous Submariner, the modification of two details imparts a completely new look to the present timepiece. Rolex decided to give to the bezel and dial a vibrant green color. Indeed, it seems incredible that a color change modified the overall feel of the timepiece in such a tremendous way, and the final result is striking and innovative. Nicknamed the “Hulk” for its full green layout, it is adorned with a green metallic dial and a magnificent Soleil finishing, capable of reflecting shades of green in a three-dimensional effect. The scratch-resistant green Cerachrom bezel is a total innovation compared to the previous examples and granted more resistance and fewer damages, also conferring more vibrant color that could last longer. Highly sought after by passionate, the present example is offered in absolutely remarkable condition, with its robust 40 mm case with broader lugs and solid Oyster bracelet. A profoundly versatile and stylish wristwatch, the Rolex Hulk will forever be the public’s favorite and this can be a good chance to purchase one of the most loved examples by Rolex, further sold with all its accessories, including original box, warranty, booklets and tag.
